Not everyone is technically inclined and sometimes you need people with little technical know-how to share files with you. Droopy makes it as simple as giving them a URL pointing to your home computer/server. You run the python-based web server on your computer, make sure there is an open port on your firewall, and anyone you share the URL with can share the files as easily as sending an email attachment.

ShaRing™ is a single ring designed to replace the need for three separate rings used in a full mouth series. Anterior, posterior and bitewing radiographs may now be taken with just one single ring, saving time, money and space. The ring is completely autoclavable and is compatible with existing metal anterior, posterior and bitewing rods from most manufacturers. It incorporates wire clips for any digital sensor.
Working closely with XDR Radiology and Adam Chen, DDS, Litening Rods ™ is the latest development of an existing radiology standard. Metal rods have been used for decades in dental offices. Although effective, they are costly and prone to pin breakage. Litening Rods™ eliminates these issues. Constructed of solid high heat plastic resin, these rods are completely autoclavable, reusable and both low cost and light weight. They have the added benefit of incorporating a wire clip to accommodate the latest in digital sensors and work with any standard anterior, posterior or bitewing ring in addition to ShaRing™.
“We have reached a time where we can combine both new and old technologies to produce the best available products at the most reasonable cost to the dental profession,” relates Thomas Gillen, President of Design and Manufacturing at ClikTech, Inc. “ShaRing™ and Litening Rods™ serve as the bridge to make the transition from older to the newest technologies significantly easier for the dental office.”
ClikTech, Inc. is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company and leading provider of digital sensor holders serving the design, engineering and production needs of companies and partners nationwide. ClikTech, Inc. supports its operations with a highly reliable infrastructure of design and development of product lines and provides engineering solutions to customers and partners in the United States.

I Can See Clearly
In a post on the company’s blog, ClearCorrect CEO, Jarrett Pumphrey, said, “Five years ago, we started ClearCorrect out of a passion to help. Doctors had no choice in clear aligners, and we wanted to change that.Since then, we've remained focused on changing the clear aligner industry. Well, now our ambitions have grown. I’m very happy to announce Phase Out, a new ClearCorrect project we’re kicking off this year.The purpose of the project: To change the world.”
ClearCorrect’s unique phase-based approach to clear aligners is at the heart of the project: Every ClearCorrect case includes a certain number of phases (a phase is a box with 4 sets of clear aligners). More often than not, a few phases are left over at the end of treatment. Starting January 1, 2012, for each leftover phase, $20 will go toward phasing out life-impacting issues for people in need.
ClearCorrect is partnering with charity: water to launch the first of several Phase Out initiativesenvisioned for the project: phase out unsafe drinking water.
“It’s unbelievable that nearly a billion people on the planet still don’t have access to something so basic as clean drinking water,” says Pumphrey. “charity: water is an incredible organization working to change that. They have a big job to do, and we want to help them.”
Through Phase Out, every time a phase is left over at the end of ClearCorrect treatment, $20 will gotoward building wells and other water projects in developing nations with charity: water. One phase = one person with access to clean, safe drinking water.
To learn more about this project or get involved, visit:http://clearcorrect.com/phaseout.
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, ClearCorrect was founded by dentists to serve the dental and orthodontic industry by providing a more affordable and doctor-friendly clear aligner system. The system provides dentists and orthodontists an alternative to traditional metal braces when straightening teeth. With this system, teeth are straightened using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. The company's modern, needs-based approach for serving doctors and patients has earned it a leadership position within the dental industry.
Now in its fifth year, ClearCorrect continues to gain popularity with over 11,000 dentists who are providers. For information about ClearCorrect, the company and its products, visit www.clearcorrect.com or call toll-free: (888) 331-3323.
About charity: water
charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100%of public donations go directly to fund sustainable water solutions in areas of greatest need. Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80 percent of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses. Just $20 can give one person access to a clean water project.

Dr. Richard Cordano, of Cordano and Spears Dental in Yuba City, Calif., scanned the 100,000th digital impression. He purchased the Lava C.O.S. in October 2011 and has already completed more than 97 cases using the system in combination with Trevi Dental Studio, which uses CAD/CAM dentistry.
“The fit of restorations made with digital impressions captured by the Lava C.O.S. is phenomenal. We have a great lab but the Lava C.O.S. takes it to the next level,” said Dr. Cordano. “Digital impressions speed up the initial appointment because you know right away if you need to rescan. At final seating the contacts are right. Everything is right. We’ve been very happy with the results.”
Dentists using the system have noted improved productivity through faster seating times and more predictability when scheduling because of accurate digital impressions. In addition, the Lava C.O.S. connects to several leading dental lab scanners and CAD/CAM systems, which allows an open connection to a variety of restorations and materials.
Launched in 2008, the Lava C.O.S. features 3D-in-Motion technology, a unique tool in digital dentistry. Unlike current point-and-click technology, 3D-in-Motion allows the Lava C.O.S. to capture continuous real-time 3D video images that create a digital impression, sent directly to any laboratory, which is then used to produce precise-fitting restorations.

“It’s been a privilege to serve the doctors and teams who make CareCredit available to patients,” said Dave Fasoli, President, CareCredit. “Reaching our silver 25th Anniversary is important, but in many ways we view it as only the beginning. Helping patients access care is a long-term commitment that we have embraced as a company. We will continue to work hard to meet patients’ changing needs, so more can hear better, see better, feel more confident and smile bigger.”
Doctors agree offering CareCredit as another payment option is the right thing to do for patients. “Twenty-five years ago, I added CareCredit because I believe every patient should have access to my best care recommendations,” explains Dr. Gary Weiner, the first doctor to add CareCredit. “Patients want to be healthy and many prefer a payment option that’s convenient for them. In any economy, CareCredit is relevant and helpful to patients.” Dr. Ross Drangsholt, the 150,000th doctor to make the program available added, “Patients need another way to pay for their Orthodontic care. We had tried another program, but were not getting the approval rates or service we needed. Adding CareCredit just made sense, especially today.”
CareCredit, a healthcare credit card, is available at over 150,000 enrolled practices across the country. CareCredit is exclusively selected for their members by most state and national dental associations, including ADA Business ResourcesSM, AGD, AAOMS, and AAP and is also recommended by leading practice management consultants.
